Keeping Track of Comments

One feature I wish my Blogger blog had was the option to subscribe to comments, which would allow the comments section of the blog to become a forum for ongoing discussion and conversation, should anyone desire to use it that way. Many blogging sites do not offer this option, however, which is why I thought I’d mention a few alternative ways of keeping track of comments (and not merely blog entries, which one can easily track with RSS feeds).

First, there is Commentful, found at http://commentful.blogflux.com/usage/ This will allow you to add and track comments through Firefox, an RSS feed, or in several other ways.

Next, CoComment, found at http://www.cocomment.com/, allows one to add additional features to many blogging platforms, as well as track comments from various sites and forums.

Third, yet another place to look for a similar service is Co.mments.com at http://co.mments.com/
